  • A minor outside the School of Business
  • A Liberal Arts Enrichment Program area
  • An approved SOU certificate
  • Participate in an SOU-approved study abroad program for a full academic year. (Coursework must be preapproved by the School of Business Study Abroad Advisor.) Students who participate in an SOU-approved study abroad program for a shorter period of time will receive credit toward the International Perspective or Cultural Diversity Liberal Arts Enrichment areas.

SOU offers the following Certificates: Post baccalaureate Certificate in Accounting, Certificate in Applied Finance and Economics, Certificate in Business Information Systems, Certificate in Management of Human Resources, Certificate in Interactive Marketing and E-Commerce, Post baccalaureate Certificate in Nonprofit Management

  • Notes

    • Students who have been admitted to SOU may take any lower division (100 or 200 level) course in Business Administration if they have met the course prerequisites.
    • Students who anticipate declaring a major in Business are classified as Pre-Business Majors until they are admitted to the School of Business.
    • All Pre-Business and Business Majors should contact the School of Business office in Central Hall 144 or 141A at Southern Oregon University to establish a student file and secure a faculty advisor.

    Southern Oregon offers a BA or BS in Business Administration, with options in these five areas: Accounting, Management, Marketing, Small Business Management, and Hotel, Restaurant, & Resort Management.

    SOU offers several co-majors that combine strengths from two disciplines to form a single degree. A typical co-major requires more coursework than a single major, but less coursework than a double major in the two disciplines. The following co-majors are offered: Business-Chemistry, Business-Mathematics, Business-Physics and Music-Business.

    SOU offers Minors in the following areas: Business Administration and Hotel, Restaurant, & Resort Management

    Online Degree Completion Program

    The Online Degree Completion Program is designed for those who live outside of Ashland or who need additional flexibility in their schedule due to work and family responsibilities. The program offers upper division coursework needed for a bachelor of science degree in business administration with an option in management or accounting and a minor in psychology or criminology. Most lower division course requirements are not offered online at SOU and must be taken on campus or online elsewhere. Students are required to attend classes on campus twice during their program: in the fall for an orientation to the School of Business (BA 201) and at the end of their program for their senior capstone presentation (BA 499). For more information, contact Joan McBee at 541-552-8151 or visit www.sou.edu/degreecompletion.

    Additional Requirements

    In addition to the departmental requirements listed above, students must also complete coursework for university admissions, general education requirements, and BA/BS requirements. Meet with a PCC Academic Advisor to develop an effective transfer plan that will meet your individual needs.

    PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
